You might be wondering how you can get your company to the highest ranks and get people to work for you long term. This is fairly easy and it all comes down to how you are as a boss. When prospective employees come for an interview they will be able to tell straight away what it will be like to work for you. If you make them feel uneasy or uncomfortable in any way they will refuse the position if you offer it to them. You also have to be aware of a high employee churn rate. This occurs when lots of employees leave of their own volition, this could be due to what it is like to work for you or your overall company.
To be the best boss you can be, you need to be kind, warm, and approachable. You need to build up a good rapport with your current staff members and create a strong word of mouth so future employees want to work for you. If you are horrible and nasty then not only will this cause your present employees to want to leave and look for other work it also means nobody will want to work for you.
The best bosses are the ones that are understanding and sympathetic to their employees’ wants and needs. If you are approached by an employee regarding a problem within the company then you should be seen doing your best to resolve the problem straight away.
Look Into Sustainability
You will find more often than not younger newer potential employees will only be interested in working for companies with sustainability values. If you are going green as a company then we highly recommend putting a section on your website regarding what you are doing for the planet. This will encourage people to work for you and apply for jobs you have listed. This way you know you are getting people who will value you and your company.
There are many ways you can go green within your business. One of the first things you should be doing is conducting an energy audit, this gives you a rough idea of how you can change your ways and save money in the process. One way to ensure you are going green is to send all your bills to clients using a paperless method.
When your employees work hard all year round you should think about giving them rewards and incentives to carry on the hard work. This could be in the form of a bonus at Christmas time or regular days off throughout the year. Providing incentives will not only create a happy employee, but it will also create amazing word of mouth for people not yet working at your company. If people hear how good it is to work for you then you will soon have CVs flying in left, right, and centre.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that employees who come to your company don’t want to be stuck in the same job for the rest of their life. They want to further their career and make their way up the job ladder within your company, a great way to ensure this happens for them is to provide them with training and professional development opportunities. If you are a company that needs employees to have special licences to go and complete jobs then you should offer this to them when they join. For example, they might need high risk work licenses to go on-site, this should be something that they get first when they start working for you.
